 Post subject: Heavy sliding door
PostPosted: Fri Oct 20, 2017 11:12 am 
Hi,

I've bought a 34kg oak brace and ledged door and am planning to mount it to some stainless steel 'barn style' rollers and rail. My question is, can the wall ( internal load bearing wall made of cinder? Black breeze block looking stuff (1930 house)) take the combined weight of about 45kg?

The rail will be mounted to the wall with 4 bolts as in the link below

 Post subject: CONVERT 100 WATT FLUORESCENT LIGHT TO 125 WATT
PostPosted: Fri Oct 20, 2017 10:59 am 
I want to convert an old twin-tube fluorescent light from 2 x 100 Watt T12 (8 foot) tube to 2 x 125 Watt. Some time ago I acquired a small stock of 125 Watt T12 tubes at a reasonable price. New 100 Watt ones are a ridiculous price. I tried one of the 125 Watt tubes in one side of the luminaire. It started and lit, but went on and off, meaning, I think, that ...

 Post subject: Best way to drill 30mm holes in thin plywood.
PostPosted: Thu Oct 19, 2017 9:49 pm 
Hi,

I need to drill few 30mm holes about 7mm distance from to each other in thin plywood.

I don't have access to a drill press.
How would you keep the drill straight and prevent it from moving?
How would you do a clean cut from both sides?
Are there any good drill guides for such task?

We have finally knocked through the wall between the lounge & dining to created an open space.
Now time for flooring!
Previously we had laminate & found issues with rising damp/leak somewhere & had to have the laminate ripped up.
The insurance people could not locate the leak/confirm that its definitely rising damp - so gave us some money & made us sign some indemnity that we cannot claim for leaks in the future.

The ...

 Post subject: rcd randomly tripping
PostPosted: Thu Oct 19, 2017 3:30 pm 
Hi chaps.
A few weeks ago i had a new consumer unit installed along with a new kitchen ring circuit and a new circuit for the range cooker. The reason for this is that I've swapped the lounge with the kitchen.
The range is all electric and is 6 years old but has been in storage for 4.
The rcd for the circuits that include the cooker (there are 2 rcds on the board) keeps ...

Please confirm if you strongly agree, agree, disagree or strongly disagree.

1.I prefer to buy my building supplies online.
2.I’d be happy to use a marketplace to compare and buy my building supplies.
3.An online marketplace (like Amazon) just for tradesmen (and women) is a great idea!
4.I only buy my supplies from one local merchant
5.I can save money by shopping for building supplies online
